    We must not try to interpret scripture about Babylon to mean any city or nation that did not exist in Bible times. As for the sins of the nations, you have to look at the long history of the nations and their deeds. Hence look at Rome, it has a long history, especially the Vatican. God will judge all nations and those that have been around the longest have a long list of sins to be judged.

    babylon of old or is this referring to the system of world Banking. since we see this as John's vision for the future events I would place this in our life time. I believe it refers to NEW YORK as babylon, many language's and all the worlds trade goes thru there and it says a city not country. it takes on 1 hour to destroy that's the key. old babylon would take armys days to destroy a city .

    Rome is the 1st beast of Revelation 13 , 14, and is the mother of harlots of Rev 17.
    Rome is the queen of Babylon... Babylon = religious confusion.
  • John
    There is no Doubt! America is Babylon. There are so many parts of revelation 18 that says America is Babylon the Great. Here is ONE. And Revelation 18 verse 7 says How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow, give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow. Does America not Boast How good she is.
  • Pray For Truth
    God loves everyone, but America and Israel are God's two chosen blessed nations. The constitution was inspired by God.
  • Adam
    Babylon was a real city though and the scripture refers to it as a city, not a country. Also Babylon already fell.
  • Martha J Wiseman
    As I was reading your post, I was thinking just how right you were. Because that's just how America thinks. you are so right!
  • JESUS is Lord
    America alone is NOT Mystery Babylon the great.
    Revelation 17 explains.
    Vs. 1 the great whore sitteeth on many waters.
    Then ..
    15 And he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.

    In revelations Babylon represents America. It is the nation which everyone drinks from also known as the eagle- America's symbol. it is the queen of sin. It also speaks of the bear, which is the symbol for Russia. We see so many things going on between Russia and America in the news right now. Russia is the next super power. this book is real-its not just the past, its past, present, and future.

    Babylon is the Roman Catholic Church / Vatican

    If your only tool is a hammer ,everything looks like a nail (or, Roman Catholic) it amazes me how so many preachers completely overlook the parts that talk repeatedly about the wealthiest nation that will be destroyed that the kings of the earth will be totally destrought because they can't do business anymore, that is NOT Rome!

    1-24 above we see Jehovah / GOD (again) cut-off his blessing to a nation; it is nothing new under the sun because GOD took the same action against the nation /people HE led into the land promised to Abraham; both nations receive the wrath of GOD because they preferred to love and practice sin more the GOD word. the ..., ..., will not be able to bail her out. Through the BLOOD my bags are packed.

    Babylon is of old, the head of gold that maintains power throughout the world just as it did during Nebchadnezzar's reign (1st prophecy pertaining to Babylon). Some 27 nations were identified for destruction by the 70yr prophecy . This prophecy encompasses a time scale, which is completed in Revelation with the LORD reigning judgment on Babylon for her corruption. (Jeremiah 25)

    Shane, Lm I concur because from Dr. Martin L. King to Dr. Billy Graham and many other modern day saints and prophets have warned us to return to our God the God of Israel and the forefathers of the documents of our nation to help the poor, farther less, and widows but we have not heeded the warnings. Ps. 9:17 says, The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget. Amen!
  • Lm
    shane .....right on!!!!! amen! !!
  • Shane Carroll
    The Babylon spoken of here is America. There can be no doubt. "One Nation Under God" seems to be less than half a nation under God these days. It seems that we've thrown away, that which made us great. Just as Isreal did, we have turned our back on God. We, as a nation will be "thrown down" and merchants the world over will weep for there will be no America to buy their goods anymore.

    REV 18:23 Meaning was relevant then and even more relevant today. It means the human light or spirit is not bright due to the weathy merchants aka masters of this world-Evil Corporations that spin lies, illusions or sorcery on all humans and all the countries are deceived. Eg. Medi-Pharma Cartells that kill Pharmakia in ancient Greek: Sorcery or creating spells with illusions, potions and drugs.
  • Rich groom
    On the test I picked pride, which I believe is correct! In verse 7it says, in her heart, she sittith as a queen (pride) am no widow
  • Alex
    When i read Rev 18, I think abut the woman taken in adultry that they wanted to stone but Jesus said he that is without sin let him cast the 1st stone. We are the Woman that has been taken in adultry , humanity We go a whoring after all these materialist things that religion/satan offers us. Jesus wrote on the ground, meaning he is gonna write on our hearts GO AND SIN NO MORE, HIS BAPTISM OF FIRE

    Revelation 18:23 says the candle will light no more and the voice of the bride and groom will be heard no more.the walks in a miraculous way I bless your name Amen
  • Marlon
    My biggest take away from Revelation 18 is in verse 4 "And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues". Many of gods people are still in and worshiping this false beast/church. Wake up and come out of her/it. Confess sins to god and not the pope. Call no man father but almighty god in heaven.

    21 This 'millstone' is a very, very heavy stone (maybe 10-20,000 pounds) shaped perfectly round into a wheel; grains such as corn, wheat is placed under it and it is rolled over the grain to CRUSH the grain into very fine flour or fine corn meal; when such stone / weight is dropped into the sea, it very quickly sink to the bottom of the sea and 'Will Never' be found again, ...HER REWARDS. WOW!
  • Donald Grant Cheesman
    When it comes to pass the witnesses will finally know for sure what the great city, or false church or wealthy but sinful nation is spoken of here; in the Holy Book of Revelation 18:1- Because of current global tensions--the "Great City" refers to what--clearly the nations are deceived and her sins flagrant--angering God.......
  • Obbie Beal
    9-19 'the great city' or 'babylon the great' received her plagues that day, and the moring after there is death, and mourning, and famine as she she is be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her. All Kings of the earth, merchants, captians of ships, cry, cry, cry, over her/ their partner in sin/ crime because their relationship is forever-over /finished with her. WOW!
  • Obbie Beal
    18 above... she earned the title 'Babylon the Great'; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived; She seduced all kings... now she shall receive her reward for her actions... Lots of blood is on her hand, now she must pay for her actions... The 'love' of / for money is the root to all evil; Ships sailed from afar to do buisness with her... She controled World-Wide buying and selling in 18.

    Jesus - Matthew 23:37 - O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not! Behold, your house is left unto you desolate. Jerusalem KILLED the PROPHETS

    Babylon San Francisco. The city will be destroyed by an earthquake. California's electricity will be knocked out. The United Nations Conference on International Organization (UNCIO) was a convention of delegates from 50 Allied nations that took place from 25 April 1945 to 26 June 1945 in San Francisco, United States.

    The image of the dragon and the whore sitting on his back is much older than the Church of Rome; and is more deeply entrenched in the hearts and minds of the men of the world than merely the Catholic Church. It goes back to about 100 years after the flood, when Nimrod began to be mighty in the earth, and the turning away of the hearts and minds of men against God and against His Anointed. Psalm 2
  • Elijah St Jechisurs
    This chapter deals with organized religion the Catholic church is the topic of the discussion between John and the angel Gabriel
  • Mari
    This chapter is clearly Rome. Read verse 6. Now read verse 24. They killed the apostles
